After taking some more time off, unwanted time at that, I finally decided to join a gym!
I researched some gyms in the area and decided to join Snap Fitness, a place right up the street from where we live in Kingsport. It’s a new gym, only been open for the past few months. It’s affordable, open 24-hours and has some nice features. I walked around and was sold – this will be my destination for the next year.
Tuesday morning was the day, the day I laced up my shoes and drove to the gym. I cannot begin to explain how good it felt to workout in an actual gym again, one with new equipment.
I’ve been using the gyms at the clubhouses in the complex we have lived at for the past year and a half. Why pay for a membership, when I can workout for free? Well yesterday answered my question, gyms have much better equipment and atmosphere.
The feeling too, the feeling of working out with others, even though we are all doing our own thing, only motivates me more during my workout. Everyone seems to always be happy while at a gym, which is kind of what I experienced today.
I left the gym with a huge smile on my face, and a little sore from some of the exercises I did yesterday.
This afternoon after I met all my deadlines I got ready for the gym again. All my frustrations of the day were left on the treadmill after my run, as well as the elliptical after an incredible workout. I felt completely refreshed. Yep, working out is supposed to be a part of my life.
When I got home and climbed the stairs to take a shower I felt every muscle I worked out, walking back down the stairs was a little more intense … love the feeling of being sore, it means I did something.
I can’t wait to go back tomorrow.
